'inevitably, every hero fails. the true mark of a hero is not that they never fail, never fall down… no, you know a true hero by what they do after they fall. by the way they pick themselves back up again, shake themselves off, and throw themselves back into that good fight.' - fallout equestria

heroism is certainly a theme. littlepip kills a lot of ponies - some in self-defense; some to protect others; some by accident, some in the course of fighting for the greater good, some in moral outrage. how much killing can a pony do and still be a hero, and if you've done too much, can you be anything but a villain?

"you can’t fix dead." - calamity [character in fallout equestria]
